LIBRARY X is a one-story library in Inglewood, CA. Library X’s plan operates according to two systems, dividing the public and private portions of the building. In the main public spaces, the “diamonds” of the transformed geometry become points of entry and circulation, while the “legs” of the circulatory diamonds become thick poché elements, accommodating load-bearing bookshelves and passageways, creating large rectilinear main spaces. In the private spaces, the “legs” acquire a double width and merge with the diamonds, becoming inhabitable and creating more intimate rectilinear main spaces enveloped by legs. Circulation cuts straight through the double width of these swollen spaces, creating depth of emergence into the private realm of the library.
